A Slow Starter That Eventually Hits Its Super Hero Stride

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: A combat-focused game that gets old quick Graphics: Camera orientation problems and animation glitches abound Sound: The voice acting is as bad as it gets Playability: Repetition is the name of the game. As explosive as the new combat is, it's all this game has to offer Entertainment: The game eventually delivers some thrills?after six hours.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

The Gamers Temple
22 June 2009
  • Excerpt: By Kevin "Berserker" Hall Player(s): 1 Memory: 142 KB (game save); 2GB (Hard disk install) Web of Shadows is a much-needed return to the free-roaming sandbox style gameplay of the Spider-man universe. Although last year's Friend or Foe was not an extremely bad game, but the chosen beat'em up style didn't match Spider-man at all.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows Review

8 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Playing super hero games usually always goes something like this: get excited about a new game featuring some of the best super heroes around; play said game and realise there's nothing super about the gameplay; and turn off game wishing you hadn't bought it in the first place. There are exceptions to the rule, but not many, and Spider-Man: Web of Shadows isn't one of them.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: Little else can be said about Web of Shadows except that unlike previous Spiderman titles, this one is intended for teenagers instead of younger kids, and it doesn’t help it along. Boss battles are not memorable and the few cameos other superheroes make are not particularly worthwhile. There is also a lack of unlockable secrets, which in the past had fans playing through the game over and over again to find each and every one of them.

Expert Review

Game Informer
29 May 2009
  • Summary: I know Spider-Man likes to joke around, but he should start taking his video game career more seriously. Web of Shadows plays like a bad joke. Spider-Man's voiceover is so whiney and crackled he sounds like he lost his puberty, the missions are repetitive, the framerate chugs in certain spots, and the game's story and dialogue made me groan more than the cast of Night of the Living Dead.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

Playstation Illustrated
25 May 2009
  • Excerpt: I was so anxious to get my hands on this game. Seeing the trailers of the new ground-to-wall-to-air fighting system looked awesome. I am, by the way, a big Spidey fan, so a new Spider-Man game for the PS3 had my attention immediately. In general, the appearance of New York is nicely done. The buildings seem realistic enough, as do the textures used, giving the city a nice, lived-in look from the tops of the skyscrapers.

  • Excerpt: Unless you live under a rock, you've no doubt heard the famous lines "Spider-Man, Spider-Man. Does whatever a spider can." In the Marvel universe, this statement is absolute truth. But for some reason, video games haven't been able to allow Spider-Man to do whatever a spider can. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows was supposed to change that and truly bring Spider-Man to life in a video game for the first time. Unfortunately, it fails at doing so miserably.

Spider-Man: Web of Shadows (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
25 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Imagine you’re Marvel. I mean, imagine you’re someone who works for Marvel, or you’re a director of the company. You have this little comic book called Spider-Man that has been quite popular over the years. In 2002 you release a movie that breaks all kinds of records on its way to a top 5 finish on the US all time box office charts, and follow it up with two more $300m plus movies. Spider-Man, friends, is one of the biggest movie series of all time.
